Seward Johnson's sculptures take over NYC pedestrian plaza

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City has a new summer attraction that is bound to turn heads.

Seward Johnson's life-like and life-size sculptures of iconic figures like Marilyn Monroe and ordinary people doing everyday things are making an appearance along a pedestrian plaza on Broadway.

They're so dead-on you're forced to do a double-take.

The installation features 18 painted bronze sculptures, including some based on famous impressionist paintings.

It's the largest public installation of Johnson's work in New York City. It's presented by a group called the Garment District Alliance and on view through Sept. 15.
